I was with my wife Tam and the original plan was to check out the Gibi shoes outlet at Tutuban, have dinner at Lucky Chinatown Mall and then buy some Tikoy at Ongpin.  We were able to do one out of the three proposed itinerary for the night because it was already 6pm when we were able to get out of the house.  But we enjoyed our friday night ‘gala’ at the famous Binondo Mall.

This was our first time to visit the Lucky Chinatown Mall since its inauguration last year.  Envisioned by Megaworld as the first high-end shopping mall in Binondo Manila near the famous shrine of San Lorenzo Ruiz and Divisoria.  The shopping mall is equipped with awesome features similar to its other projects – Eastwood, Newport, Burgos Circle and McKinley Hills.  The interiors were fantastic but the exteriors are nostalgic.  Here we are savoring what’s left of the Christmas decor outside the mall.

The mall has everything from the hottest boutiques like Cotton On, Bench, Penshoppe to a number of cool restaurants like Red Crab, Italianis, Sumo Sam and many more.  It has a built-in supermarket plus a state-of-the-art cinemas capable of projecting 3-D films and equipped with a high-tech security facility.  The mall also has an amusement center and SM’s Toy Kingdom and Appliance Center.

We went from shop to shop and Tam was able to buy something at BaYo.  We then had our dinner at Kogi Bulgogi.

Kogi Bulgogi is a restaurant that serves authentic Korean Dishes.  It belongs to the same company that manages Tokyo Cafe, Stackers, Peri-Peri and Parmigiano – iFoods Inc.

Kogi means ‘meat’ in Korea while Bulgogi on the other hand is a Korean dish that usually consists of marinated barbecued beef.  It was also our first time to dine there so naturally our plan was to have a taste of their famous bulgogi.

The first thing that Kogi Bulgogi waiters did after giving us the menu was served us with a free Banchan which is an assortment of sides  for our main dish composed of sweetened anchovies, sweetened banana, sauced okra, bean sprout, a spicy atchara and of course kimchi.

House Salad - 98.00

Over-all it was a very tasty and satisfying meal and the price is so affordable.  Our total bill was only P718.00 plus tip.  Kogi Bulgogi has outlets at Eastwood Mall and Limketkai Center in Cagayan De Oro.

We capped our night at Lucky Chinatown Mall by buying some ‘pasalubong’ for the kiddos at Goldilocks.  We already know where we’re going to celebrate the Chinese  New Year on February 10.

  1. I.have also eaten here before. i think it was way back Mothers Day last year with my wife, my mom and my mother-in-law. we all enjoyed their bulgogi. very tasty. Now that Divisoria is less congested after the holidays, maybe we should visit that mall and this resto again.

  2. Eastwood is the nearest branch for me and I plan to drop by soon. Now I know the price range, somehow I know what to expect. Thanks

  3. I’ve always wanted to try out Kogi Bulgogi but knowing it is under the same management of Tokyo Cafe and Stackers, makes me think it’s on the expensive side.

    Reading this, I now know I can ask my foodie in crime Anj to try it out 🙂
